General de Brigade


Recommended Posts

Has a label but it's packed away because I'm trying to sell home. Never had tabs and has always been a general rank. A lot more wear than photos suggest but still very nice display of wartime tunic.

I would love to get a named one to a General who commanded a division at Verdun. As the French rotated their divisions, and the Germans barely did, quite a few French commanders would do ;-)

At the Museum at Verdun they have Mangin's tunic.... if I could choose a single tunic of any nationality, that would be it ;-)

I am a huge fan of French WW1 military and its war history. The French are unappreciated, especially during the Great War.

Do you have photos? I think one of my generals tunics is named but I'm packing because am selling home and have 3 weeks to get moved.

My 4th tunic. Another General de Division bit in Horizon Blue. I love the kepi paired with this tunic.

I hope everyone enjoys looking at this. Aside from my German field gray uniforms these are my favorite items.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
